They -- -- particularly special player great now you know we're all of our compare that they you know. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- He got Google's they do it no that there will be an aggressive dominant player but -- with the -- And he's got the skills they -- in this bar where he's going to be quite a bit of where. Always Simon and Jeremy why he. Order of the drought that and at the spotted out and are particularly the bad there's a lot of mystery and intrigue and it and draw. You know a lot of chances that people like maybe -- keep me there. Saw or player are the pot or players they could go to New -- I wrote a letter but. It got so you know -- where to start. And but the thing is really becoming. Riveting already for me absolutely. It was all over LeBron rejection. All of it cannot get enough of LeBron. It's riveting now occupied a lot of it is about a month that's an -- They are -- -- -- saluted yesterday couldn't get enough of what teams are trying to unload players to bring in LeBron and Carmelo or LeBron -- -- that was. But you know was fighting. I saw on Twitter I was not watching the match I thought on Twitter and the reason why I knew that story it was you and Sports Illustrated. You brought this up before the World Cup about Suarez and they did a big article about him and as I. About his previous biting incident the racial slur at all as poppies that while I mean I might wanna give you some background on -- lean mean he's been known to shoulder at eleven mile players our say -- attempted to be in a few times -- you leaning characters speak for everybody. The best part I. -- mean he bit somebody yet but I don't wanna make of it but it's it's really -- this is hilarious actually having this discussion at the best part is when you say you bit somebody and the responses. Again and again third time right. He did it again. And yet others have probe into Luis Suarez who. Probably should be suspended the rest of the -- he's got a right which is I was gonna say booted the depression use that term he should be out for the rest of the term. Without exaggeration. Would that make him the biggest disgrace in sports. Ever albeit bigger disgrace at Mike and Chris for having interesting discussion yesterday. About the just the we craziest worst thing you've ever seen on ice on the field on in a match in a -- whatever they brought up you know Mike Tyson battle field. They brought up some hockey at its members on Andrew Peters was bitten by Yorker route to. -- to what he missed though. -- -- game was that even if I forgot to actually check the link those five teams the point is that I was making -- Luis Suarez now that we're not just that. It is the world caught up once every four years. You play for your country right. And you will not be able to do it like more than likely they will suspend him let's see if they go the NHL line of thinking which is they don't suspended he's got a good suspended. And jump in the NHL would now we've. Get this is -- right James -- Now not so much they're right Rick Nash. I'm not sure the NHL -- you -- coming -- -- -- standard for all of that they're not the NHL so they probably well. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- To be playing for your country to be the best player. For your country. And to be kicked out because you can't stop biting people like there is a level of mental imbalance to display and I don't and that's why it was it's I think with -- lawless or someone of the guys and asked that -- -- said. He needs help like he -- -- -- someone to take like psychological. Guidance and help something that there's a sickness here and you know. The -- the one way that they said -- that article Sports Illustrated a few weeks back was. He -- so competitive he almost like loses aid doesn't know what's going on now on I'm sorry that's not an excuse that's just that's just so convenient way to try to cover up for. -- Not just inappropriate does need to do to adjust as the kind of behavior that is beyond inappropriate. So. I'm trying to think they were there were two or three things that were quote finger quotes the best part of this. One of them was Suarez is reaction. When he goes down to the ground and grabs that has now. As if to explain and an afterward you talk about the guy -- you know he shouldered him in the mouth he got hit in the mouth which is why went down grabbing its -- The next part is yet Suarez is explanation afterwards quote. These are things that happened on the pitch we were both in the area he thrust his shoulder into me. These things happen we don't have to give them so much importance. And and the Europe like coach I don't have the exact quote in front of miss out on sports and this morning you know use. It was translated and -- in other than having missed at the bottom screen. He sits up about game and it's soccer things happen on the field is no morality that dot. -- -- -- kids as well in the heat of battle. If the World Cup I mean this is like us write this -- guess. Silica Plaxico look the other way on certain things which we don't. -- openly in the third in the first -- not a -- in the third period. I wouldn't necessarily get suspended for something and -- -- that they might get suspended for the regular season. -- He's leaned his head into his shoulder and bit the guy is clear video evidence of it he's got to be suspended. It's that he's got to be tossed for the rest of this tournament. And I guess Jerry my question would be is there have been previous World Cup suspensions. That carried over to future World Cup's long enough band that would carry over to. Would they do a long enough and that the next time in 48. Team he's suspended for that as well. Which -- to speak to score did you. I'm speechless. With how stupid you'd have to be. You of the chance to be an international. Superstar which areas but it are home to a national hero and -- through the round of sixteen was here way. And instead -- was the hero in their previous game right and he's brought the two goals in their previous guess he did. This is the equivalent of candidate and even now every four years. You are the star of your country and you are going to be instead be known for something so ridiculous. Steve is going to investigate they announced that yesterday -- why has until 4 o'clock today to present their evidence which would include video recordings. Fifa has to make a decision before Saturday that's when your -- plays Colombia in the round of sixteen. If you're wondering about his history let me give you a couple quick notes. He has. Bitten opponents and been suspended two other times. In 2013 he was banned for ten matches in 2010 he was given a seven game -- both of those were for -- opponents. And after carriers about World Cup suspensions. Longest abandoned World Cup history. Eight games for moral to Saudi facility of Italy. For breaking Spain's Luis Enrique is nose in 1994 with a helpful. He got eight games this is the third but now granted it was an all the World Cup this is that the get a 21 was in the in the Premier League maybe both work. The other biting incidents but this is the third biting incident in the World Cup so he's he's no question he's out for this year right mister excel question is they suspend him long enough that it carries over -- the when he eighteen they're probably shouldn't. And how does this play play out back in Uruguay and what does that do for Suarez is reputation and everything because it happened on the biggest. The biggest. World sports stage. The World Cup the entire world is watching. -- I mean it's a no brainer for this -- popular question is how long as the man and how soon does someone get help for this guy we got. Possess a human being applied to bury your head in someone's shoulder and might. And I I've watched the video probably ten times and I know you you know you talked about that story and how he he loses that he snaps. Still cannot I cannot get to the poor could think of one human being and being turning burying your head in the shoulder of another man and biting. It's. It's -- the funniest part is his reaction going down thing he should you eat these shoulder went into my mouth and officials missed it which is. And that's funny but. -- -- The guys pulling on his shirt shall bite marks and and and out my brought this up I didn't notice this but one of the guys from your right ran over to the Italian player. And quickly pulled the shirt up for the replica look at the bite mark. Mike Tyson a tweet from Billy Mike Tyson even in ebitda one's ready got a chunk. Mean he bit his ear. Off to a degree. Got a piece -- is disgusting you know. That's right up there. Yeah you've got to be you've got indeed sick right like really deranged sick crazy. -- the ethics out across the line and do that. I you don't. I -- defend -- route to there are different levels of flights. -- Edgar Peters is up. Did you know was a was handed his base -- in the face it like to block the glove was up near his face and he can write -- hockey. Hands are in your face a lot -- -- desperate last minute that might be a little bits. You know overcome how bad is it that's like a 94. He got it today while it was a 102 games right providing providing. It to put your hand in somebody's facing continue to like messing around right at your face washing. Now clearly. You could in theory try to just porsches and out of the way but maybe your hands are -- a year and a big scrum and that scenario it's wrong but at least it's more understandable than Wallace who's running invites a guy's shoulder. You know who does that my dog does that. When you have two dogs running in the park one Kenneth jumpers took a bite the neck and the other one yeah that's what. There are that separates us of the animals or. I tell my dog does that with his brother lives two doors down they play they rough house and his brother likes that nip at the back of his back legs you know. I was but I resisted the Mike and Chris -- about this yesterday I thought of this and I I'm a did not this did not happen -- But I'd bet it's happened to some people out there you get the call. I mr. white. It's. So once those daycare. -- A year. Child at someone today. Three Euro for a child's. -- -- your child bit someone. This is a grown man who -- -- I don't mean to be laughing but it's just. It's almost it's unbelievable it's like this like you could see this -- like a movie or wrestling you know staged events. What it's a real life sporting event and he actually leaned his head in and shop on the man shall. Believable. And you know what I don't open them. I think the most unbelievable part is not that he did it it's that he's done it -- that this is the third time he's done it like how does that I keep. -- another individual. Sickness. The only answer. So the idea that he'll lose the right to play for your country at some well actually the other two and a half this country. Yeah I mean can you -- a guy out of the game. Absolutely like Luis Rivera who's gonna be banned for life from any soccer federation on the well planets that thing you mentioned that because. The guy will think coming up for you later today. When I'm president. Of the United States yes yes of the United States that there will be more lifetime bans in sports. Real yes and it's pretty heavy duty stuff Mr. President yes. There will be lifetime it's guys at last comments and then the sports leagues that we want cleaned up in the nonsense that we want out of them will be on. -- -- From their lifetime and anymore he's not gonna get like the only got a got a lifetime ban was surely you know and -- gambler right. Mob guys guys that are allegedly. Gambling on baseball and that's it nobody else ever gets lifetime -- you prison sentences -- sent away for life but even then. If you go to prison the league with what you back. Right Aaron Hernandez serves his time if he's allegedly guilty. Believe what -- him back -- he could in theory try out sure and right. So it's time. Sports need more life time bans gay gay guys that you don't need out of your game. And -- is that top publicity should be. On his biting worked a lifetime ban it might not be. Well but it's the third and the third in the us it isn't a one time the guy snapped in the heat of battle he is a repeat repeat. Offender and if if if we're going to talk about you brought up James -- And we had this discussion with Chris Simon I'm trying to think of other guys that. Me and Matt -- we've had this discussion with hockey a lot if the guy continues to show waiver a certain. Tendency or certain behavior at some point of the message isn't getting through. You have no choice but to throw the proverbial book at this person is up so I mean I -- piece of defeat but doesn't say he's out for the rest of the 24 team broke up. My question is -- he missed games in the 2018 World Cup and does anything I don't think anything beyond that would happen I don't think other leagues would ban him. I I don't think it would get to a lifetime -- from every league on the planet. But. I don't know what else do it yet unless you you make it you have to make a mantra by the way he has to be ordered to go get some kind of counseling. What a -- war I had a blocker. But that -- the top. Probably now I'm sure you're right they'll have to get some kind of counseling. As part of the suspension he's he paid Luis your bandit and now you have to go get some. Counseling animal sensitivity training camp. What much I don't know what to call all right but that's gonna be part of that he'll be suspended and someone will -- him. You'll not allowed to play soccer again until you get some counseling to explain why you feel the need to buy it. The only you know you're about lifetime -- that I just wanted to check this. OK. He was it wasn't a lifetime -- but he never came back -- -- it was Marty McSorley. It was and it was say. He was suspended and the suspension was extended to one full year but he never did play another NHL game for. The swinging the stick it publishers -- incident but it was never. It when it was issued it was not a lifetime ban but for all intents and purposes it was because Marty McSorley never played another NHL game after that. That's the closest thing beyond the black socks. That I can think of Pete Rose was banned from baseball. And and prevent it from going in all and that's the I can't think of any other. Alex Rodriguez ever coming back he says he launched into a story the other day. That he wants him back and play next year and I can't believe he did he become back but he was it's not a lifetime -- That would be. -- it's a collusion because I think he's washed up but but that would be this teams would make the decision he's not worth side. Couldn't get the Yankees do something about it I mean couldn't they. I don't know pay him not to show up -- try. Boxer but Tyson came back the fight could they like suspend him. War on suspension. Because something. None of us. Involved that is apt phrase it's. Biting but. What about what for biting. -- -- 8030550. We got a lot of stuff to get to today 88550. To 515 if you talk about the Luis Suarez biting incident. This is brought up yesterday I don't think. I don't think it will -- think he does it -- -- it all from the tournament. They have that discussion yesterday as part of the ESPN coverage and I thought. I forget which guys you know they have so many different round tables now -- so many different players that the -- drop their coverage and which ones but I just thought. -- the turn and don't it'll it'll be the focus today and by the way that that at least in this country the focus will. Quickly shift back to pay the US is playing tomorrow. And then we'll move on with a round of sixteen and the only way becomes a story. Is if he's not suspended and he gets the play and he helps or guide or why keep winning then it becomes a big story. They be suspended then if we all move on and it doesn't take away from the rest of the tournament. It was something losses can bring up this is my third that. No there was. Now I guess it was -- I wish I wish I was listening to Mike and Chris yes there's gonna bring up the worst things you've seen on in a game. The dirty is play ever I Suarez is not inclined to say I was that I I was thinking last night. Okay things we see that their dirty you wanna bring up hockey sure McSorley for sheer. Bertuzzi Steve Moore -- guys checking from behind into the boards head shots. Basketball I was thinking it for me it would probably be the Kermit Washington sucker punch on Rudy Tomjanovich. -- Karl Malone elbowing David Robinson was a pretty bad one he -- remember it well he pretended to miss a ball and elbowed him in the head -- Malone is known to do stuff like that Malone also used to raise his knee when he drove the lane to need guys in the chest or in the stuff. So that's rush try to think there was John stock -- step on people's feet on purpose people were talking about Albert Haynesworth was his -- I Craig garage or odds head. Pasture that was that was it last year it was with the Carolina sent this gamer got Carolina grabbed Vernon Davis is. Yeah enough yeah yeah that's right. I think -- -- -- thought about baseball. The pitcher thrown at a guy's head. Like I was trying to think of what what if anything is the worst on the worst thing you could see on field right. Let's say it's sorry Delmon Young throwing a bat and I'm pretty bad -- that. That's a long long you guys were actually I don't think I was born long long time goes into the fifties or meet the early sixties. I think it was one Marshall pitcher for the census giants took a bat and hit like somebody from the Dodgers in the head to head with that. I thought like what are some of the worst things sucker punches in hockey I think our. Cheap you know deeply cowardly stuff now I know it was last year. James Neal meaning Brad Marchand and head yeah that's one of the -- things I've ever seen. -- mean hockey we could list the top of it the right yeah shots and that's why -- others like with for me. I think thrown at a guy's had a -- thrown out of that are said to me is. -- can't even -- -- -- it -- but even that. You can't ensure that you give him right Chris Hill I think the bravery is sturdier that is of a fastball had a thousand times in Bakersfield besides a minute this guy and face what by shall visit. I've I've lost count how many. Based who shall context -- what will we have the smallest incident. The guy with the face with the one doing the damage he actually did as opposed to maybe that's what an NHL player has to do. -- earned a reputation that you don't hit me in the face because I'll -- whenever you're hitting Hewitt. -- the NHL's got this on lockdown the -- on field incidents on and I did in the sport a play in the NHL owns this. Whether somebody is somebody possibilities head shots like almost every night checking from behind blue cheese cheese can opener and it's -- all the time. -- basketball it. It may be in basketball you can hide it a little bit more like you said you know the the -- elbow when nobody's looking or meeting a guy Europe. You know what -- we know actually in football. The stuff that people say happens in the scrum you know if there's a fumble and and guys are grab and at other guy's stuff and -- people -- grounds that old probably right up there Bill Romanowski. Ending the guy's career. Punching it was it in practice -- puck to guys yeah. What we're talking about worst guy in the world. That's that's Romanowski. Ending your own teammates career punting -- that. Yet it's pretty bad pretty good. The tribute bigamy cringe worthy stories today. Why is not the worst at all it's the most avoidable. But it's not -- Agassi is that the most -- and it's it's not the worst it's it's the most bush league I guess you can't even. What do you say is that is not level with Jason writes in -- Roberto Alomar spitting umpires face. At the dot I gotta tell you that's dazzled -- biting his horse I mean it's. I'm not I mean -- she spitting in anybody's face is terrible too but he bit another human being. Like teeth into skin. Romanowski is 2003. -- Marcus Williams during a scrimmage. Williams -- forced her Tyrell -- -- confronted him after play ripped off his helmet crushed his eye socket with a punch. Teammate practice. Scrimmage is it's pretty it's pretty good that's pretty bad not to say -- -- okay but. In the World Cup in it in a match not ripping off the team its helmet in the scrimmage watching but the guy. Yet there's it's that there's. I don't know -- there's two sides that one is heat didn't damage him at all he'll be fine the guy's not -- decision breaks right docket and it's time that Texas shot of Peru's. This is a sport where you -- feuds in the legs. And then there's the -- it. He beat him. -- Come on man. You can't play anymore because that's ridiculous. So I'm I'm kind of torn between the two yet it NHL we do this a lot of like the well as you think to me is more golf I mean for two assault comes from right that's worse -- -- -- a sucker punch a guy mean and and again now tells -- were condoned and fighting and not know -- it's on the scale how damaging could it be -- he bites him in the jugular. It's not going to be that there. It's coming. That way to start 803055. That jut his worst thing you've seen 888550. To 550.

I doubt that that that some of the curses so division tells night's sleep on some times have we -- to one. Joseph the other out for Thursday's game against Germany the US law -- about the for a second street. Match -- Kershaw another -- Dodgers beat Kansas City Tuesday Mets -- Oakland ten to one.

I'm Jeremy -- it Ichiro Sports Radio 550 for breaking sports news text or sports at 55550. -- -- -- -- 635 -- Jeremy. Matthew here. One of our nominees for -- worst on field incident. Ager Martina is attacking Don Zimmer I think. -- attacked Pedro -- -- -- came out right in a charged up -- afterwards and bull rushed him and figured listed like you know it the self defense class. Put on the ground. -- -- move that night and close. -- early show an old guy down but as I didn't call a little guy had a comment there was a bunch of incidents of Pedro throwing people that -- worse than that. Roger Clemens throwing a bat like -- In the World Series and not getting ejected claiming it was thought it was the ball and not getting ejected as if you would throw the ball that during easily. Same. Size okay -- him hitting piazza in the head on purpose. To merit piazza never forgave him for that. Nor should -- now. Yeah -- get a lot of good stuff on Twitter. About the worst thing you've ever seen we're talk about the Suarez biting incident. 8030515. Just get some calls here. And some -- stuff get to as well. Got -- Chris Simon with Ryan whole leg right I think what his site that site writes I missed his leg I think. It's a semi YouTube video of something happened in the CFL games is awesome stuff we -- when you heard Mike Tyson a moment ago the Tyson Evander Holyfield incident got the Monica Seles stabbing incident what has eroded his -- on Medicare standing is gonna go to capitalists just Sharon Twitter coming -- it's a stabbing. There was a guy named soccer. Apparently Vinnie Jones and soccer famously squeezed and other guys. What -- show haven't we used. -- -- -- Super hurt like a kick to the catcher and and charging the mound not remember that remember that one he was in the minors -- it okay. Yeah okay well let let us now 8030515. The goal a goal -- got it was fireworks exploded in his face that seems a little bit that severe. 888550. To 550. Will go to bill in -- bill you're on WG yarder right ahead. -- guy I don't. That just real quick and you're right on the -- shall it was between the -- -- Internet airplane to rival the doctors. That catcher John wrote girls -- It was. Right in the heat and the -- spent. He said he afterward that he -- they have with the -- because when he moved the ball back to the pitcher. It was a little too closely here as well that was -- reasoning -- -- already have with the bat got. Part of the rival -- second start at the -- -- out their big time more than what you can back and New York. Clearly he was a little bit. Old that often has had that at that point. -- and I I can remember I mean but -- yeah I would think you know evident that it got ahead I think that would qualify as one of the worst defenses you can see on the field. Eagle 30550 to join us 888552. For fifty. And if you wanna share in terms of some of the worst things you've seen in game match. Events that kind of covers all the different things in sports. I had a spirited debate with a listener last night on askew -- About the job of general manager in the world hockey. Because. Now we -- a lot of things on the year -- wrong. Right you know what it's like to be wrong. Say things that are wrong. Name one incident you're wrong. Worlds better. Named Dave -- -- I think that the the bills are playoff team meticulous -- his rookie. Pardon go -- hot dog. So wrong a lot yes and sometimes we were pretty darn right. And I can remember those write those. That's a -- one go to the underneath indicated won rookie of the year. If only. Someone had been able to convince RC -- -- You should hire Patrick Waugh. And you should stay until you do. Jack Adams award. Patrick -- but he's -- room and right. Your interview last night I I didn't watched most of the awards I saw snippets. And one of the awards I saw was the coach of the year award and as Patrick block. I think he was gonna win it with him Babcock and John Cooper net Patrick -- went up I thought of you coming on the station everyday and think it. Lot of areas -- the go to the year. I regardless -- gotta be love and life sir I wrote an article or website. Way back go get Patrick watch -- the organization needs whether it was going to be firing gear and get -- or exploit the fact -- your city had a good relationship with law. When it came to McCain in archery -- didn't do enough to make the team bad enough they were worst in Colorado that year and yet they picked -- And you know so anyway just looking back it's that was a missed opportunity to hire a potential Jack Adams coach. And a rookie the other could have been a position to get both of those guys and I'm you know it was a lot of why would why I've come here and answer. Easily could have been -- you offer him gobs of money because your owner owner is about the by football team like he can afford to pay it anyway money and power money and power right. Kick -- upstairs. Whatever if they are Patrick block and drafted -- McCain and or -- Continue to be bad -- -- revisionist history but this whole thing that we all hate could've been a year fast -- Anyway so he said -- you know you figure could be GM that's ridiculous my answers I don't think it could be Virginia. The general manager. Listens to all the scouts. You know some GMs are scouts themselves other GMs are not other GMs -- personnel guys in the NFL you've got people that have been kicked from. One PR. Journalism to PR and a couple incidents were guys that the guy he was the GM and Carolina Marty earnings no longer there I think started out PR -- courses -- record -- the giants into a suitable team that started in PR like. You don't need. Some sort of crazy pedigree. Anytime I hear sports fans talking about GM's. Like their super heroes like these these these gentlemen are born with the ability to do something -- or not right. So yes I I I I think it could put together related sabres -- I think a lot of our listeners could. And that's part of the reason that I'm one of them depict very -- so I don't know do you ever think about that way the lake. When you when you won -- something to happen so badly and you were sold right. To -- like. If somebody gave me this job -- would do all right. -- I do all right. Yeah I think I think the one thing that I would have trouble with. And I guess we -- to for bringing up -- in this discussion. I think you have to be able to be aggressive you have to not worry about the ramifications -- -- doesn't work out you have to trust your judgment. And you have to just go with your gut and sometimes. Take risks. I'm not a risk taker I'm a conservative person by nature I probably would not be a good general manager because I wouldn't be. I wouldn't have the strong enough conviction to pull myself bottom limits they have -- I trade this guy what a few plays well with the other team or. I can move up in the drafting get Sammy Watkins but. You know what if -- I that I don't have a first round pick next year so I think you've got to be a gambler. I think that's one hundreds -- I liked America to Murray one of the many things yes that is what he's thinking about a trade. I think it's right thing to do pull the trigger don't sit around two -- thinking about just pull the trigger. I would be sit around two weeks thinking about it so I I think that would be -- a big problem for me -- general manager I think you can evaluate players -- and find players and other teams you like that you can figure out which got a draft for your team that you do all that stuff. I get a business got to manage my cap in the contracts. But I think you've got to be able to pull the trigger on things and I don't know I would be acting too conservatively to the general manager. Well I can do of course and finally could I just I mean. It's not hold your whole crew of people who all have great NHL experience you have and athletics department that. I mean it comes on you at the end of the day you get the final say it's your job your name is on the title. We we talked about it like it's so much harder than it probably it's ought to think it's that hard but I think ultimately know it does come down to you and I would probably be. Heaven and on too much to be a good general manager Derek writes in -- underestimating the value of being part of hockey network previous relationships -- -- the NHL. -- am off my college GM and I've got a trade offer that he likes he's gonna say sorry you are in the network. Yeah Atlantic records and a friendly planet we've got to worry about I got players -- he wants that he's gonna take them I use the Ryan Kesler. Example right now right. With that is out there now. There was Jim bicker over. You know I think Jim vampire right thank -- that Jim Benning is getting calls on Ryan -- yeah. So is Jim Benning got to make a deal let's say he's good buddies with Stan Bowman in Chicago. But Anaheim calls Bob Murray called Bob Murray makes a much better offer. But he's good friends with Stan Bowman has taken and this is and cast of the Chicago to no -- budgets emboldened him he's gonna make -- -- and a because he's got a better return that package so it doesn't. Matter who -- connected with who your friends with I I don't think that is I think number one and being good GM and not take all of that suffer talking about it doesn't even take some sort of unbelievable scouting side because you have other scouts with. It takes a knowledge of how economics works and player of asset management and -- and that's why the guys like. You know Theo Epstein and John is a lack guys like that. In the major leagues who come from economics background or something like that. I think they've had a lot of success in building teams because it's about valuing what you hat. And I think Emory has a really good concept that and just looking at the Ryan Miller trade and what he got for for Miller like. Asset management -- the turn -- the right time to our security are looking back that archery -- he'd been such a smarter GM to a traded Miller the year before for. Even new thing yeah. To just go to the bottom but what could brick -- done I don't know. Let the worst team in the league be the worst team in league they finish with -- regulation and overtime Wednesday with a horrible. And yet. When we sit here there was what one weekend going whether gonna play the Bruins and the Rangers a what are you gonna do it the deadline well see how we play these two games. That's gonna do when -- your sake let's hope they lose. He's gonna think they're good but it doesn't take. Much to say. Are we good enough to win the Stanley Cup no okay that we should probably try to bunch of guys and rebuilt the guys in Pittsburgh right. Pittsburgh has race euros along with a team in Pittsburgh was here with good GM. How good you have to -- to win the Stanley Cup. You've got to make the right moves at the right players dean Lombardi a couple of big moves it work to -- he put together every team you can make the argument that he is well. But for and I fired wasn't good yet because he should've won more cups with the with Sidney Crosby he's got that across and again and getting Malkin you should win more than one cup. So. One more tweak U becomes so arrogant the morning shows impossible listen -- and what I say this I mean like. 80% of listeners could be GMs do it's not about I think I'm great I just on the good job is all part the sabres are doing what a lot of us have been asking them to do. For years. So we've been saying. -- go to the bottom just stinks for awhile draft that the topic now the GM is doing it so I think it was he one of our listeners that -- -- for this whole time just because he worked and Ottawa he's more qualified me. Thank this is a plan that anybody can come up with and I think part of well. Even I wouldn't screw up this year's draft. The number two US broke any draft if you're dressing in the tiger obviously exercise that right I meant I am I could -- -- second third or fourth round picks probably but you can't screw it and I'm probably in the same rate that all of them do. Thank you just pick off the chart. Take central -- chargers -- from -- get some good players and some bad players most of the good players in the first round. Then comes the second then comes the -- It's it's just not that are so I mean if you're out there and you you don't think you could do it I disagree I think you probably could. 8030550. To join us 888550. To 550 that's the worst thing you've seen in sports. Suarez biting another player yesterday in the World Cup Leodis McKelvin.

A list that includes buffalo in the top ten and marketable it's a good thing but it's not a bad thing it's a good thing image is structured -- Although when you think about three guys on the show if you believe. There are bidders who I believe will be involved were committed to keeping the team. In buffalo. Now this is a fluid process. And everyone is interest and everyone is concerned. So mind.
